Subject: <nettime> (fwd) Book of Anonymity – fresh from the press!

*Book of Anonymity*


is now out with punctum books (released March 2021).

Anonymity is highly contested, marking the limits of civil liberties and 
legality. Digital technologies of communication, identification, and 
surveillance put anonymity to the test. They challenge how anonymity can be 
achieved, and dismantled. Everyday digital practices and claims for 
transparency shape the ways in which anonymity is desired, done, and undone.

The *Book of Anonymity* includes contributions by artists, anthropologists, 
sociologists, media scholars, and art historians. It features ethnographic 
research, conceptual work, and artistic practices conducted in France, Germany, 
India, Iran, Switzerland, the UK, and the US. From police to hacking cultures, 
from Bitcoin to sperm donation, from Yik-Yak to Amazon and IKEA, from DNA to 
Big Data — thirty essays address how the reconfiguration of anonymity 
transforms our concepts of privacy, property, self, kin, addiction, currency, 
and labor.

Edited by the Anon Collective, the volume presents contributions by Anon, Götz 
Bachmann, Dwaipayan Banerjee, Solon Barocas, Aram Bartholl, Amelie Baumann, 
Paula Bialski, Andreas Broeckmann, Heath Bunting, Martin De Bie, Bureau 
d’études, Jacob Copeman, Abigail Curlew, Stéphane Degoutin, Simon Farid, 
Parastou Forouhar, Randi Heinrichs, Anna Henke, Michi Knecht, knowbotiq, 
Gertraud Koch, Julien McHardy, Helen Nissenbaum, Gerald Raunig, RYBN.ORG, 
Daniela Silvestrin, Thorsten Thiel, Transformella, Daniël de Zeeuw, and Nils
